Archiv des Österreichischen Widerstands
Lonely Planet review for Archiv des Österreichischen Widerstands
Housed in the Altes Rathaus (Old City Hall), the Austrian Resistance Archive documents the little-known antifascist resistance force that operated during the Nazi regime; some 2700 resistance fighters were executed by the Nazis and thousands more sent to concentration camps. The exhibition gives in-depth analysis of the Nazi doctrines on homosexuality, ‘unworthy’ citizens, concentration camps and forced labour, and there are many of the photos and memorabilia detailing the time before and after the Anschluss. It is a disturbing but highly worthwhile exhibition.
